“Blog Detailing My Life”

A few hours ago, my wonderful friend and sorority sister, Amy, left me a facebook wall post telling me she liked reading my philosophical blogs and that my posts detailing my life were good too, especially when she’s procrastinating from studying.

Well right now, I am procrastinating as well.

Because I love Amy soooo much I’ll give in and write vent.

It’s nice to know someone actually likes when I detail my personal life. At first, I thought people found it annoying. Maybe some do, but if at least one person actually likes hearing about my life, well that’s good enough… I guess. Well whatever, I’m going to do it anyways.

Where to start…

Well, I’m currently procrastinating from studying for my 4 exams this week. I have one Sunday night, Monday afternoon, Wednesday afternoon, and Friday night. Shoot me?

The two back to back on Sunday and Monday are going to be awful, so I’m not looking forward to those. My Wednesday one isn’t too bad. My Friday one, well, I just have to get lucky-it could go either way EVEN if I know the material like the back of my hand [this one’s my honors class for my program and the prof and TAs decided they could mark howeverrr they liked even if you answered things correctly… gah]

The only thing getting me through exams right now is the fact that on December 21st I am flying all the way to Punta Cana with my mom and my brother for an amazing week of tanning, drinking, relaxing etc etc etc. I’m super excited. Especially since the fam hasn’t gone on a vacation in about 3 years. Every winter break since 1st year I’ve gone back to Toronto to work at either Hollister/Abercrombie and Moxies, or in the case of last year-both. It will be nice to not have to work this time. It’ll also be nice to spend some family time together. Weird without dad- but nice.

One thing that sucks about this winter break is that I don’t get to celebrate the holidays with my family. Tonight marks the first night of Channukah and I’m… well clearly not home celebrating. No candles or latkas or driedles or anything for me…stupid exams… Ah well, I think tonight I’m going to my friend Lauren’s place to light candles together. If I get enough studying done that is…

To add more to the blog of my life, and since everyone in my life seems to already know, I might as well update the website on my relationship status– I am currently single. Again. And for some reason, my Facebook friends list decided to have a field day and comment on the change… Not very nicely I might add, so I had to delete [I still love you all, though]. I know I never really spoke much about my relationship so I wont go into detail, out of courtesy and so I don’t have to go into a very very very long explanation I’ll just say….the situation is unfortunate…

I’m not going to lie and pretend to be all super strong Jess like I normally do with ended relationships [that I get over in a day usually]. This one’s not like that. I am upset. I am mad. I am disappointed. I am sad. And I am very very worried. I just don’t like any situation where I can’t change things that clearly need to be changed. It’s a weird place to be in. I guess there’s nothing I can do now.

Except study for exams.

Ok sooo I’ve been taking notes on Chapter 6 in my textbook for a combined like 7 hours now and am STILL not done. Better get back to it…


Happy Channukah fellow members of the tribe <3

    I think what you’re doing is awesome 🙂 I had a permanent ileostomy in July after about 7 years of Crohn’s, and I’m now 22 and in grad school earning my PhD in chemical engineering. I’d love to meet more young people who are going through the same things as me.
